Award-winning contemporary artist Iva Troj creates fine art pieces which seamlessly merge Renaissance aesthetics and techniques with postmodern praxis. Her intensely detailed images achieve astonishing tricks of light and shade, as practiced by the great masters while incorporating dreamlike scenes which challenge cultural norms. 

Exhausted by a society in which women often feel vulnerable, threatened, or powerless, Troj recasts the fairer sex as powerful creatures, freed from the oppressive male gaze and placed within Edenic settings where they can revel in their own beauty and potential. Blending abstraction with figuration, the natural world with the urban landscape, dream with reality, Troj's breathtakingly beautiful artworks achieve something truly unique, both in terms of aesthetics and concept.

Troj is 3 times Cannes Lions nominee for her Halo Masterpiece and 2 times Contemporary Art Excellence Artist of the Year award winner. She was also the winner of the Towry Best of East England Award in 2013. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and her work is in collections in the UK, France, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Germany, China, United States and Japan. In 2021, her epic painting Halo Infinite Masterpiece was exhibited at Saatchi Gallery and The Louvre. 

And in Sept 2022, she was invited to exhibit a body of work at The Louvre in Paris. In 2020, two of her paintings were included in the permanent museum exhibit at Haegeumgang Museum 해금강테마박물관] in South Korea. The painting technique Troj mostly uses resembles the Flemish method of layering thin veneers of paint between layers of varnish.
